Can we talk? We all know that in the past, Office for Mac hasn't necessarily played that well with Office for PC. On this episode of The Office Show, we'll show you how that's all changed with Office for Mac 2011.
You might not believe this, but around here we don't consider "Mac" to be a dirty word. We like Macs. We like people who use Macs. We want them to have great experiences with Office. But let's be honest, it's been a rough road. Especially when the Mac people spend a lot of time working on their docs and then send them to the PC people, and they end up looking like... well.... insert your own metaphor.
In this Office Show, Dr. Office, aka Doug "Office Casual" Thomas, shows you how Office for Mac 2011 makes compatibility so much better. Docs made on Macs look great on PCs. And vice versa. Not that we really want to wade into that whole operating-system-as-personal-identification conflict thing, but we think this makes the argument a lot harder. Plus, Mac for Office experts Stephanie Brown and Kurt Schmucker show you some more cool features, like background removal, drag and drop page layout in Word, and reordering in PowerPoint, which lets you open up the layers in a presentation "like a sliced salami."

Microsoft Word and PowerPoint for Mac 2011 Tips

Interesting, and a long-needed update. Just a minor point - my silverlight settings may be wrong in some way, but the video has screenshots of the office applications that are at too low a resolution to make out clearly.
If you don't consider Mac to be a dirty word, why can't I watch the video on Safari or Chrome for Mac? In addition, why do tools like Microsoft Communicator ship unable to create meetings or even join meetings created by another OCS user?
I really do appreciate Office 2011, but seriously - if you are going to build tools why not make them fully functional? I have been told Lync will fix this, but I'm not holding my breath. This lack of attention to details makes a person lean seriously toward tools built by companies that really do consider Macs worth attention.
Please fix Communicator, add things like Facebook connect to Outlook 2011, and fix tools like Remote Desktop for Mac, which is worlds behind where it could be.
SHow us you really love the Mac and you will win more people over.
